6 Written questions

6 Multiple choice questions

  1. Refers to the child's level of development in a given area (language). It is the age of most typically developing children at the time their language is similar to the language of the child being tested.
  2. An approach to identifying language disorders in which clinicians account for social norms and potential social, educational, vocational, and economic consequences of the child's language abilities in the decision-making process.
  3. Determining a child's age to compare them to other children the same age. We typically use years and months (2;3--2 years; 3 months).
  4. Administration of formal tests to determine how a child's performance on an aspect of language compares to the average performance of children who are the same chronological age.
  5. The ability to understand language (the opposite of expression).
  6. Allows SLPs to test beyond the limits of behaviors the child displays in non-teaching (testing) situations. This type of testing helps clinicians decide whether poor test performance is due to language learning difficulties or lack of understanding of the test task, or limited exposure to the types of questions that are being asked.

6 True/False questions

  1. Multi-disciplinary AssessmentMembers of an assessment team conduct their own independent assesments of the child's abilities that relate to their own interest areas (SLPs evaluate speech and language only, physical therapists--motor abilities).

  5. Pre-linguistic CommunicationOccurs before the child uses words. It includes gestures and non-word vocalizations.

          

  6. Trans-disciplinary AssessmentMembers of an assessment team conduct their own independent assesments of the child's abilities that relate to their own interest areas (SLPs evaluate speech and language only, physical therapists--motor abilities). In a summary meeting, each member of the team shares their findings and recommends treatment. The emphasis is on the parts of the child rather than the whole child.
